Students’ kindness earns council recognition

School officials and family members congratulated Brandon Britton
and Lucas Downey for their Random Acts of Kindness which were
recognized by members of the Westland City Council last week.
Members of the Westland City Council officially recognized two students for their Random Acts of Kindness, a program implemented in cooperation with the Wayne-Westland Community Schools and the Westland Compassionate City Committee. 

Recognized this month were Brandon Britton of Wayne Memorial High School and Lucas Downey of William D. Ford Career-Technical Center. 

Britton participates in the district unified basketball team as a student coach.

He has been a consistent presence for the team, and the players look forward to seeing him, according to his nomination. He was recognized for his kindness in volunteering his time to this unique program, officials said. 

Downey is a young man willing to help out in any capacity, according to his nomination. From helping another student with an assignment, to helping teaching staff. He helped bring down the carts to the lecture hall when his class had to temporarily change classrooms, his nomination noted. 

Downey is consistently nominated for student of the week for always going out of his way to be extra helpful in the Autobody classroom, school officials noted. Westland council members congratulated the students.
